When not making video games, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima teases gamers. It's not that he makes fun of them (he doesn't...I don't think), but he dangles carrots in front of his fans like no other game designer working today.

And sometimes it's interesting, and sometimes it's annoying. But it's what he does. He's Hideo Kojima.

Kojima tweeted that he found this figure on the a co-workers desk, then added, "What is it?"

So this photo with what looks to be Z.O.E. 3DS in the background should come as no surprise to those who know Kojima's M.O.

Is Hideo Kojima making a 3DS version of Zone of the Enders? Or does that mean something else? Play along with Hideo if you like, but I'm going to sit this round out.
